Both teams have been impressive this season and will be hoping to add another victory to their stats.
Without All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook in the lineup because of an injury, young Reggie Jackson will continue in that position for Oklahoma City (25-5) again tonight.
LaMarcus Aldridge, who is averaging 23.5 points and 10.8 rebounds per game leads the Trail Blazers (24-7) lineup.
The Thunder have won three straight, but did lose 111-104 to the Trail Blazers at Moda Center in Portland, on Dec. 4.
Behind a chorus of MVP chants, Aldridge ended with a double-double of 38 points and added 13 rebounds on a night when the hosts snapped an Oklahoma City eight-game winning streak.
Portland will be looking to shake off the surprised 110-108 defeat suffered to the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night.
